Looks Unfamiliar is a podcast in which writer and occasional broadcaster Tim Worthington talks to a guest about some of the things that they remember that nobody else ever seems to.
Joining Tim this time is writer Justin Lewis, who’s knocking up a When Was Things? card featuring the original Only Fools And Horses theme tune, Anglo American by Golden, The Rock Year Book, Joy by Isaac Hayes, forgotten Watch With Mother show Thomas, Stand In Line by Impellitteri, sitcom sequel Selwyn and the Glamorgan Tiles advert. Along the way we’ll be critically evaluating Isaac Hayes’ Toilet Flush Orchestra, making placards for Teddy Edward’s Yippie Uprising, and bidding a fond closedown to Algernon Lunchbiscuit and everyone at BBC2.
Justin Lewis is a writer and editor. You can find Justin’s ‘On This Day’ project When Was Things on Twitter at @WhenIsBirths, and his official website (with details of how to get personalised When Is Births cards) here. First Last Anything, Justin’s collection of conversations about music, can be found here.

Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy me a coffee here. I can confirm that I want the best one and I won’t ask questions, only with a slightly different theme tune.
